Register Recipes: Limequat Margarita



We’ve certainly been experiencing different weather patterns than the rest of the country here in San Francisco. My little brother emailed me a few days ago from Pennsylvania to share stories of sledding and snowball fights. Meanwhile, Bi-Rite has been flooded by guests looking for cold beers and chilled wines to complement the warmer weather. If I shared this recipe with my folks they would surely think not just how seasonally inappropriate a margarita sounds but also what exactly a limequat is. Turns out, this chilled cocktail is wonderful during our ‘winter’ and a limequat is a sour, aromatic hybrid of a kumquat and a lime. Let our snow-covered friends to the east toast to warmer days; let us sun-bathed folk to the west enjoy a margarita featuring seasonally appropriate citrus.

Serves 4

8-10 limequats
¼ c sugar
8 oz Herradura tequila
Ice
Salt (if desired) for rim of glass

Slice and seed limequats, muddle with sugar, and mix thoroughly with two cups of water. Prepare glasses with tequilia and ice; strain sugar mixture into glasses. Garnish with salt and a slice of quat.
